See if there is interest for this.

1. Each day I will post 10 questions, at random times of the day.
2. Each Quiz runs exactly 24 hours.
3. The first person that has all 10 questions right, wins. Or if no one has all questions right, the best one wins.
4. You can only post answers ONCE for the same quiz.
5. No cash involved. Just glory. :)

Blaise: You got 1 right. No 2 as it happens
Marcus: You got 8 right.
Mackenzie: You got 5 right.

The correct answers are:
1) Phenolpthalein (You spelt it wrong Mackenzie)
2) Ammonia
3) Heavy chemicals are those that are made in massive quantities in an industrial process. Sulphuric acid for example.
4) Alkenyl Succinic Anhydride (Typically used in paper manufacture)
5) The negative Log to Base ten of Hydrogen Ion concentration. Interestingly it is possible for an acid to have a pH over 7. What matters is that the chemical acts as an acid and not a base.
6) Boron is the Fifth Element. A Bruce Willis film.
7) CyanoMethane. However Methyl Cyanide would also be correct.
8) Material Safety Data Sheet
9) Sulphuric Acid is a Di-protic acid so the answer is 2. However the total number of protons in H2SO4 is 50 by my count.
10) The formation of the I3 complex as part of a dynamic equilibrium. Marcus and Mackenzie were both correct.

OK ... after being utterly humiliated in the chemistry quiz (though I didn't really expect much else), try this one:

Give the word that matches the definition; all answers begin with the letter 'A':

1) n. The mass which advertisers seek to reach in commercial advertising.
2) adj. With hand on hip and elbow out.
3) n. A covering to shelter from the sun or weather
4) v.t. To shorten: to epitomise: to curtail.
5) adj. Remote from apprehension: difficult to understand.
6) n. Fear of heights.
7) adj. Easy to speak to: courteous, esp. toward inferiors: pleasant: friendly.
8) interj. Denoting regret.
9) adv. & adj. On fresh or wet plaster: in the fresh or cool air.
10) v.i. To convery an indirect reference in passing: to refer without explicit mention.

3) Alee
4) Attenuate
5) Most of this quiz...Afar
6) Acrophobia?

Marcus: 2/10. Mackenzie: 4/10.

However, you both probably deserve an extra point because (and I thought this might happen) the words you gave for (7) are very close in their definition, but not exactly the same, to the word I'm looking for.

OK - Correct so far are 2) Akimbo 3) Awning 6) Acrophobia 7) Affable 9) Alfresco and 10) Allude

Any takers on the others?
